On The View last week, Raven-Symoné’s silent-accented-e-having ass once again proved that she’s got a bird brain to go with her bird hair and bird name when she said out loud that she believes in name discrimination and would never hire someone whose parents named them something like “Watermelondrea.” Raven spit that out during a discussion about racial biased against “black names.” The View showed a video of kids blurting out a bunch of “ghetto” names and one of those names was Watermelondrea. Raven’s own dad called her out on Facebook and basically said that she’s a dispenser of dumb sometimes.
So last night, Raven shat up a damage control dingle on Facebook where she admitted that she lied and didn’t mean what she said. That’s good news for the Watermelondreas of the world!
My comments about discrimination have spun out of control.
I’d like to begin by saying that I was not attacking a specific race, but repeating a name that was said in a viral video which has received over 2 million likes.
I have been denied many jobs because of my skin color, body size, and age. Each time I was rejected, my self esteem was negatively effected, so i empathize with those who feel victimized by what I said. We would hope that when it comes to hiring, our names, physical appearance, sexual orientation, and age would never outweigh our qualifications, but often times, they do, thats the truth and it sucks. But I should not be part of the problem, I should be part of the solution.
As an equal opportunity employer, I have never discriminated against a name….even though I said I would, it’s not true. My comment was in poor taste. My lack of empathy towards name discrimination was uncalled for. I would also like to say that on Friday my account was hacked, those are not my words.
I don’t even know why she bothered with that explanation. If Raven wanted all of us to shake our heads like, “Okay, okay, that makes sense,” she should’ve simply said, “Listen, The View runs from the fuckery fuel that spills out of our mouths and every time some stupid shit I say makes a producer cum out a load of excitement that hits the wall, I get a bonus.”
And in case you were wondering, this is the hacked tweet that Raven was talking about:
In Lifetime’s offices somewhere, an executive lit up after reading “Dark White,” because they finally have a name for their Rachel Dolezal biopic.
And here’s Woody Woodpecker’s hairstyle jacker outside of ABC Studios this morning.
